For the transmission take it to BTS (Brian's Truck Shop) in Arkansas. He is one of the best trans builders available. Well worth the drive.

700+ horsepower, easy

Fuel system, $1000-$2000
Injectors, $1500 -$3500
Turbo, Single - MTW Stage 4 $3400, Compounds $6-$8000
Exhaust, $1500-$2500
Trans, $4000-$6000
Intake, $1000-$1500
Intercooler, $1000-$2000
Misc- $1000-$3000

So lets say $15000 to $20000 and you're there. It gets real expensive once you pass the 500-rwhp zone.

There are only two places I would let build my trans. One is Brian at BTS and the other's name is Paul. He builds all of johnathon's trans of lead foot diesel for his pulling trucks. And as Mitch already pointed out its going to get very costly quick fast and in a hurry shooting for 700+ hp so be ready.

Also Mitch don't forget about either an adrenaline hpop or dual hoops depending on build stage. Also if you don't have a mid 04 it's going to be even more money to convert your truck to the mid 04 style hpo system.

Yes hpo is high pressure oil. If you want 700+ your going to need pretty big injectors and most of them will need a performance hpop to get every ounce of power out of them. That said there is currently a prototype 05-07 series adrenaline hpop being beta tested but no real word on when it will be released. The only option for us 05-07 truck owners is to convert to the 04 series style pump and run the adrenaline pump. Which also is not cheap.

I'll fill you in. Mine was at 674hp with 205/100's and a s364/s475 combo. Plus, the suncoast tranny, gogo intake, outlaw headers, banks ic, etc...

I done everything myself except build the tranny, stud job, and head work and had around 14k in it. I chunked #7 rod out the block and did a 24v cr swap, that added about 3k on top of that as I sold my engine and tranny as a takeout and done all the work on the cummins myself and repurposed the ADII and s364. I haven't went down the track but this engine dynoed 716hp. Doing the math, it comes to $23.50 per hp. that's not counting the axles, suspension.

But, it is cheaper to just go huge the first time and skip the buying and losing you A$$ on reselling smaller stuff. So if that's what you really want, by all means go for it, talk to MPD, Cutting-Edge-Diesel, they can get you a detailed parts list, but be prepared to cry when you see the totals. then add labor as alot of things need fabbed up to work.

Kdogg a cummins swap isn't exactly the cheapest thing or easiest to get 700hp. Hell if you really want to be realistic here is a combination that could get you at or over 650 rwhp and relatively cheap compared to kdogg's purposed setup.

MTW stage 3 $2900
190/100 injectors $1000-$1750
Complete fuel system with fuel bowl delete and rr $1000-2000
Exhaust $300
Intake $250
Tuning $300-$500

It's already been done and can be replicated.
